With eight number-ones and 30 top-ten songs in the US charts, Taylor Swift has become one of history’s best-selling artists of all time. But this Candlelight concert sees her hits, including “Shake It Off” and “Lover”, reimagined for a string quartet for renditions quite unlike the originals. Add hundreds of glowing candles in Ormond Collective’s stunning Ormond Hall and you’re setting yourself up for an “Enchanted” evening.
Taylor’s chart-topping hits are more than “safe and sound” in the talented hands of the Invictus Quartet. The classically-trained string quartet will transform music from Tay’s earlier country music days to her alternative, electro-folk album Folklore.
Swifties are more than fans, they are worshippers of a musical icon. They have embraced every artistic reinvention, and are always welcoming more. With 12 Grammy awards, 10 studio albums, and a world tour underway, Miss Swift is showing no signs of slowing down. Candlelight’s glow has spread from classical greats to contemporary icons and with this upcoming tribute to Taylor Swift fans will get to experience stirring renditions of their favourite songs in lieu of the actual Tay Tay tour.
